If you were recently injured in an accident that was caused by someone
else’s negligence, you might be looking into filing a personal injury
claim to recover fair and just compensation for the costs associated with
your injuries, including medical bills and lost wages. However, for many,
having to look for a personal injury attorney is a first-time experience
and the task itself might seem daunting if you are unsure of the qualities
that are most important.
To help you on your quest for a personal injury attorney to effectively
handle your case, we compiled a list of qualities you should look for
in a prospective attorney:
Experience: The law firm you are looking into hiring might provide incredible service,
but if they are not backed by experience, they might not be equipped to
handle your case. Ask the attorney you are considering how long they have
been practicing personal injury law or if they regularly handle cases
Success: Of course, an attorney’s level of experience will only count if it
is also backed by a track record of success. If an attorney has been practicing
personal injury law for over two decades, but barely won a handful of
cases, this is not a great sign for you if you were to choose to hire
him or her. Take a moment to inquire about the number of cases your attorney
handled that resulted in successful verdicts or settlements.
Commitment and communication: Your attorney’s commitment to you does not begin and end in court
or when negotiating with the insurance company. He or she should be available
to answer your questions and ensure you know the status of your case whenever
there are any updates.
Does what is best for clients: Trust is important in any relationship, including the one you have with
your personal injury attorney. If you do not feel believe that an attorney
will do what is best for you and is probably only interested in profiting
off your suffering, follow your gut and find an attorney will treat you
with the compassion you deserve and do what is best for you.
Personality: You are going to be spending a fair amount of time with your attorney,
going over the details of your case, asking questions, and discussing
what the best course of action is, so you will want to make sure you feel
comfortable with him or her. If you feel like you do not mesh well with
an attorney’s personality, you might simply need to keep looking
for one you feel a little more at ease with.
